London mayor defends Baby Trump blimp

Donald Trump Trump UK visit Trump UK trump mayor Trump May US Uk special relationship

The blimp, which depicts Trump as an angry smartphone-wielding infant, will be floating outside the Palace of Westminster on Friday.

"What they are good at is drawing attention to an issue and allowing you to articulate it and that's what I think we have managed to achieve here".

But Trump is unlikely to see many of those who have mobilized to protest against his visit.

The Embassy sent a "demonstration alert" warning to citizens ahead of Donald Trump's arrival in London on Thursday July 12. "So instead of 1000 tiny balloons, we have ordered a half-size Trump Baby created to be filled with air - he's made from thicker plastic so he's a lot less fragile than the big boy - meaning he can join in the protests and knock about with people in the crowds".

The organizers also said that their crowdfunding was so successful that not only will the blimp fly for Trump's visit but will also be spotted in other worldwide locales.

The blimp has been granted permission to rise above the British Parliament for two hours on Saturday, after Trump arrives in the UK.

While the activist would not reveal where the balloon baby would be travelling to, its destination will likely coincide with a location on Trump's own itinerary during his United Kingdom visit.

'Exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent, ' it said.

On Tuesday, Trump left for a weeklong Europe trip that includes a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland and the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

"He's taken one look at Trump Baby and he's wet his trousers and has run for the hills", Murray joked about Trump's schedule, which sees the president spending only one night in Britain's capital. "So, that's pretty exciting".

The president also spoke on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit he'll be attending in Brussels as well as his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin. He has been very nice to me. "I've always liked him", he said.
